What is Oracle Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)?

In a recent SOA Case Study webcast Jade Global hosted, Kranti Atluri, Consulting Director, took some time to quickly review some key aspects of SOA to be sure everyone in the audience was on the same page. Despite all of the news, content and information out there about SOA, there still remains a significant amount of confusion about exactly what constitutes Service Oriented Architecture.

Here’s a short answer to this question. SOA is essentially a design style for your Enterprise System. It is not Enterprise Architecture but can play a large role in your Enterprise Architecture. In the early days it was done using re-usable sub-routines, then came objects now its re-usable services which creates your optimal Enterprise Architecture. SOA Architecture is not something that you can buy and simply plug-in, rather something that you build. The Oracle SOA Suite, on the other hand, is something that you buy and that you use to design your Enterprise Architecture. Kranti will be presenting a Jade Global Case Study at OAUG Training Day on April 10th during Collaborate 11 in Orlando, Florida April 10-14.
